Legacies of War is a project of NEO Philanthropy, formerly Public Interest Projects, a New York-based 30-year-old nonprofit. NEO brings together and strengthens the work of philanthropic institutions, nonprofit groups and other public interest organizations sharing a vision of a society that ensures justice, dignity and opportunity for all people. By developing sustainable partnerships among donor, grantees and allied groups, NEO seeks to foster a movement for positive social change resulting in equality, fairness and a stronger participatory democracy. NEO achieves this by:
- Managing strategic and culturally sensitive collaborative funds and initiatives
- Linking and convening partners with similar goals on the local, regional and national levels to collaborate and share knowledge
- Providing expertise and resources—including highly experienced staff—to help build capacity in the field, and
- Nurturing organizations, projects and affinity groups through fiscal sponsorships and other services.
